First, when was the last time you heard of a shopkeeper doing felony time for not displaying proper signage? It is a standard warning.
This is a bill to fix a loophole of somesort that I'm sure was in dem's bill.
Do we need it? Probably not, but, here it is and all we can do is hope that it won't pass.
In the meantime the state goes deeper into debt.

Geesh-- While I understand the purpose, the rush to make anything and everything a @##$%$#@# Felony has just got to come tyo an end. A FELONY should be an act that makes the purpetrator unsuitable for social contact. NOT every little annoyance that comes along. You woonder why the jails are so full ? because every knee jerk representative wants to make some piss ant activity a felony. GET A GRIP. I would want this to be a civil offense, then money to support the state can be collected, instead of paying more to support the offending person.
